Hello Fellow Wurmians! After spending a weekend in Stockholm representing Wurm at the Swedish Game Awards we are back on track. There was allot of interest in Wurm and we got some new contacts and press coverage in the process. Since the last news letter there has mostly been fixes and optimization which is not a very interesting read. Though I can not stress the importance of this work enough. But being the nice Baron that I am, I dug deeper and found some more visual updates for you all. Giant Shark More then a giant shadow. We are working on getting a Giant Shark into the game which will be swimming deep in the waters of Wurm. It will pop up from the depths and attack unsuspecting players who look tasty! Should make for some quite good scares I imagine. Currently the main part is getting an artificial intelligence for its behavior as it will be quite different from all current creatures. What do you think, should it attack boats as well? Art Adding new models for empty small and large crates. All creatures are getting new icons and we have a ton of them already done and awaiting a graphic update. Tutorial Zone The work on the tutorial zone is progressing quickly and amidst all the world building some new models are being created. This is to create a bit more of a living and varied area to present to the new players but we are also looking into making them craftable items in the game. Guard Towers For anyone who missed this, the guard towers has gotten functionality for being rotated after placement. It will be limited to the persons who has permission to push/ pull on deed or owner off deed. Wurm on Swedish Game Awards Next to the booth of Dice and King.com was your very own booth babe Baron representing Wurm. Needless to say we drew the biggest crowd. To the left in the picture you can see our "Installation" which was two pretty open and empty landscapes from Wurm. On the table we had high quality printed assets from wurm on different sticker cards which were pre cut out and for pasting in the landscapes. So I had everyone who visited chose an asset and help build the world to see what became of it during the day. After doing this, they got a t-shirt saying "I change the world" with a Wurm logo on the back. This ended up being quite successful and people kept coming back during the day to see the crazy collage take shape! We got many interesting visitors during the day like teachers, press and students aspiring to become indie developers. Though the oddest one must have been a homeless man that somehow got in there who asked me how much the Tv was worth. He then continued to ask if he could have a t-shirt, which I told him he could. He grabbed three of them and was out of there. So somewhere in Stockholm, there is a homeless man with the text "I change the world" shining brightly on his chest, valiantly representing Wurm. That is all for this week friends! And until next time, Keep on Wurming!
